COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Lazy Mutt is an unfiltered ale, cloudy and pale in color. The off-white foam slowly disappears to reveal a slight citrus aroma. A citrusy palate gives way to a light malty sweetness touched by a hint of corn. Bottle conditioned ale made with Canadian 2 row malt and Galena and Tettnag variety of fine hops.

Bottle. Grainy, grassy, sweet malt liquor nose. A little sticky metal, less citrus. Dirty straw pour, big creamy white head with good duration and retention. Light body with pale malt. Cloying taste, thin and corny with husky grain and easing off into a bready taste. Crisp carbonation but it spends its load too quickly. Light perfume, some old, rotting fruit, and a whole lot of turn-offs. Not exactly clean.

Pours golden with lots of carbonation and white head. The aroma has pale malt, creaminess, corn and light spice. Medium / light body that unlikely slick with moderate carbonation. The flavor starts off fair with aroma traits, but then there is artificial sweetener aspect that kicks in. While this is not totally revolting, itís not really pleasant either. Iíll probably just save this for non-beer geek friends.

Petrucci914 (910) - Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 16, 2008
Pours a golden color. Aroma is skunk, corn, and a bit of citrus. Taste is about the same. Tastes like a Miller Chill with some nutty malts. Better than what I expected, which wasnít much.

UPDATED: MAY 4, 2008 Many of the previous reviews havenít been particularly favorable, but if you simply need a beer to unwind with, some easy drinking, this will fit the bill. It isnít by any means a beer for connoisseurs, but then I donít think thatís what anyone expects either. What it is: namely, an easy to drink golden ale with average flavors. I didnít have any problems with over-carbonation, or an under-impressive head, like some reviewers did. At first, I even found the aroma strangely enticing, with the obvious caramel and citrus scent besides the subtler corn scent, and those flavors carry the first taste. It closes with a slightly nutty/toasted finish. The problem is when you continue to drink it -- itís something of a sloppy beer, and the fruit (some banana even?) and caramel overpower what could be a clean, simple wheat beer. That said, if you just need a beer for lounging on the couch with football or a movie, or a beer for an afternoon of playing cards, thisíll work.

Non-existant head. Pours golden brown. Tastes of corn and a bit of wheat. Easy drinking.

kmeves (1098) - Mount Pleasant, Wisconsin, USA - APR 20, 2008
Pours a cloudy, highly carbonated pale golden with a smallish white film head. Aroma is sweet malt, citrus, banana and corn. Flavor is initially sweet malt with some caramel and citrus then finishes with a strange metallic wheat flavor. Very thin body. I bought this one thinking it was a Saison that I hadnít yet tried, that is what "Farmhouse Ale" means right?

Pale yellow with a thin white head. Light on aroma, mostly corn. Light on taste as well. Overly carbonated. Eh, not so good.

Pours cloudy amber, no head at all, nose and taste of corn, cardboard, and hay. Club soda finish. Pretty ugly.

Golden, slightly cloudy, with white sticking head. Mild Carmel, mild citrus, grain, with hop finish, but bland. Dry, sour bitter finish.

UPDATED: MAY 2, 2008 About three sips had me running to this Web site, to see if others incurred the same ill effects, or if mine had gone bad. Is there corn in this? Brings memories of my visit to a corn ethanol plant. Ever smelled one? But after about the fourth Mutt (on different days) I began to appreciate its differences. Maybe you gotta get an 8-pack to acquire the taste.
